Head of the Department:  Dr. Vasudevan T.M

    The Department of Library and Information Science at University of Calicut is one of the pioneer departments in the field of Library and Information Science education in India. The Department was established as a full-fledged department of study and research in 1985. Though a one-year Bachelor of Library and Information Science (B.L.I.Sc.) course was being offered since 1977, in 1992 the Department launched a one-year Master of Library and Information Science (M.L.I.Sc) course. In lieu of these two programmes, the Department now offers a two-year Master of Library and Information Science (M.L.I.Sc.) course through Choice Based Credit Semester System (CCSS). It has also launched M.Phil and Ph.D programmes (part-time and full-time) in Library and Information Science. The Department is leading the country in Library and Information Science education and has made a strong presence in the profession through its innovative teaching programmes, curriculum innovations, research projects, workshops, seminars, and short-term training programmes. The courses are designed to be flexible and wide-ranging, incorporating the cutting edge as well as ensuring a firm grasp of core fundamentals.

      The Department has a fairly well equipped and fully computerized library. The Department possesses latest tools like Dewey Decimal Classification scheme 23rd edition, AACR 2 Catalogue Codes, Sears List of Subject Headings, L.C. List of Subject Headings, etc. for teaching and to conduct examinations. The Department has pride possession of a well-equipped networked Computer Laboratory with Internet access.

DELISAA

        The Department of Library and Information Science Alumni Association (DELISAA) was formed on November 05 2003. The Alumni Association is dedicated to the promotion of professional development and building a strong network among the alumni around the world. DELISAA provides a wide range of opportunities, services and resources, special alumni events, continuing education programs, alumni career services, conferences, alumni contact information, reunion programs, etc. The Department alumni are occupying librarian positions in well reputed institutions and companies like VSSC, IIM, IIT, NIT, TCS, IBM and various Universities in India. The alumni maintain a close relation with the Department, helping each other in their growth.
